What is Freestyle Love Supreme?
FLS is a freestyle (hence the name), improvisational, hip-hop comedy show. Every night the performers take suggestions from the audience and spin them into instantaneous riffs and full-length musical numbers. Every night is different: no two shows are the same. We won't know what to rap about until you tell us!
Is Lin-Manuel Miranda in the cast?
Part of what makes Freestyle Love Supreme so unique is its unpredictability. Every show is different in material — and in who appears onstage. Lin-Manuel is a founder, producer, and friend of the show, and at any given performance, he may or may not be part of the cast. Other special guests might include Christopher Jackson, Daveed Diggs, Wayne Brady, Sarah Kay, Bill Irwin, Josh Groban, James Monroe Iglehart, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Alex Lacamoire and many more.
Will special guest performances be announced ahead of time?
No — we may not even know beforehand. Nothing is guaranteed. Every night brings the unexpected, and it’s always a great show.
What is the running time?
Running time is approximately 90 minutes with no intermission.
Is there an age recommendation?
Yes, we recommend that patrons be at least 14 years of age. Please be aware there is some profanity in the show.
